Summary:

Carquinez Middle is a public middle school located in Crockett, California, serving grades 6-8 with a total enrollment of 254 students. The school is part of the John Swett Unified School District, which is ranked 1117 out of 1560 districts in California and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Carquinez Middle faces several key challenges, including a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate (36.8%) compared to nearby schools like American Canyon Middle (21.3%), Hercules Middle (19.5%), and Benicia Middle (18.7%). The school also consistently underperforms in standardized test scores, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts (23.46%) and Mathematics (11.2%) that are significantly lower than the state averages (46.66% and 34.62%, respectively) and the scores of many nearby schools.

Despite having a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic (42.52%) and Asian (17.72%) students compared to nearby schools, Carquinez Middle's performance across different racial subgroups is generally lower than the state and district averages. Additionally, the school has a high percentage of students (79.53%) eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a relatively low socioeconomic status of the student population. These factors, combined with the school's declining performance over the years, suggest the need for comprehensive improvement strategies to address the challenges and provide a high-quality education for all students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
